Twins celebrate 40th anniversary

Published: 25 March 2008
Brothers Richard and Nigel Wallbridge invite 200 guests to toast the business's ongoing development.
Twin brothers Richard and Nigel Wallbridge celebrated the 40th anniversary of Yarnton Nurseries Garden Centre on Thursday March 20.

The pair – who took over in 1968 when Yarnton was a small nursery – invited family members, friends, and business partners to a celebratory meal.

Mssrs Wallbridge, 62, have developed the £3,000 nursery site into one which is 12-acres, via a £1m expansion programme, and has a turnover of £15m.

Richard Wallbridge attributes the centre's success to its ability to adapt to market challenges, and said Yarntoon is 'looking good' for the future.

Yarnton Nurseries Garden Centre is a family-run business, which has been established for more than 30 years. It employs more than 70 people in peak season, and has several departments covering plants, gifts, Christmas, and a restaurant.
